The Stakeholder category is open to any organisation directly or indirectly involved in transport planning. Being a Stakeholder opens the way to also offering the TPS Professional Development Scheme (PDS) to employees. This is through adding a PDS licence.


Total Stakeholder Membership Fee for 2024: £1,075


PDS Licence fee depends on geographical spread, number of trainees expected and size of organisation as below.


PDS Licence fees:

1            No more than 5 trainees, single site: free to Stakeholders

2            Multi-site up to 10 trainees: £2,675 per year

3            Multi-site over 10 trainees: between £3,850 - £4,925


Please note individual local authorities count as single site. Smaller local authorities may work together to obtain a Consortium licence. Larger transport authorities covering several local authority areas may be charged as category 2 or 3.
